Launched in 2010 by a Swiss native with years of experience in industrial computer systems, Teguar prides itself in combining American adaptability and technological leadership with Swiss precision, quality, and attention to detail. In this article we’re taking a detailed look at one of the company’s powerful industrial PCs, the fanless Teguar TB-5545. What is an industrial PC, often also called “Box IPC”? Well, “box” is “box” and refers to the device’s boxlike design. And IPC stands for “Industrial PC.” So the TB-5545 represents a type of computer that is far removed from the desktop/notebook/tablet/...

Il totale combinato delle aste dello scorso anno era stato più alto, 131,7 milioni di sterline.

Il totale combinato delle aste dello scorso anno era stato più alto, 131,7 milioni di sterline. Partiamo con la seconda asta, Thinking Italian, che ha visto proprio in prima battuta l’aggiudicazione record  per un lenzuolo di Maria Lai a 150,000 sterline, oltre 7 volte la stima più bassa. Bella coincidenza che anche l’auctioneer fosse una donna, Benthe Tupker. e che fosse la sua prima volta in un’asta serale di questo calibro. L’altra donna in catalogo, Carol Rama, ha confermato il momento di crescita del suo mercato (dal 2016 ad oggi). Il suo Untitled è partito da 60 mila sterline ed è salito nelle offerte fino a 175 mila. In totale il catalogo tricolore, giunto alla seconda edizione, ha fatto £39,582,073  (contro i  32,196,250 del catalogo 2017) con 38 lotti battuti. Di questi sette sono rimasti invenduti. Stupisce che nella lista dei “bocciati” ci sia anche Lucio Fontana, solitamente star delle aste. Stasera invece ha visto tre lotti -su sette- rimasti al palo. Quattro se contiamo anche i tagli rossi, tra i primi realizzati dall’artista, battuti nell’altro catalogo nella sezione “Oltre il monocromo” che erano stimati 1.2-1.8 milioni £.  Suo comunque il top price dell’asta, co...

The main function of your welding nozzle is to direct the shielding gas into the weld puddle in the most effective manner possible. The best welding nozzle for you will depend largely on your welding application, joint access, and welding process. Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) guns have a variety of welding nozzle designs to choose from. So many, in fact, that sometimes the decision about which to choose is not always clear. The main function of your welding nozzle is to direct the shielding gas into the weld puddle in the most effective manner possible. The best welding nozzle for you will depend largely on your welding application, joint access, and welding process. Some nozzle designs offer better gas coverage, while others offer better access. Some limit the efficiency of reamers in robotic applications. Choosing the right nozzle design depends heavily on whether you weld in spray, pulse, or short-circuit transfer mode. What are the types and styles of nozzles? What role does their material makeup play in the final weld? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each welding nozzle design? Let’s outline the most common materials, designs, and features in detail. For the ...

Buffy launches plant-based bedding coloured with natural dyes dezeen-logo dezeen-logo

New York bedding company Buffy has used natural dye made from a mix of plants, spices and fruits to colour its eucalyptus fabric sheets. The collection includes a duvet cover, fitted sheet, top sheet and pillowcases, available in two tones of grey made from a mix of pomegranate, eucalyptus, and tea. Another colour option is a blush tone created from turmeric, gardenia and walnut. Buffy worked with natural dye experts Maria Elena Pombo, founder of Fragmentario, and Kathy Hattori of Botanical Colors to create the different dyes for its plant-based sheets, which are made from eucalyptus fibres. The brand sought to find a way to dye the fabrics that would be more sustainable and environmentally friendly than typical methods. These use a large amount of energy, water and chemicals, and release toxic run-off water into the environment. Instead the Buffy bedding is coloured with ultrasonic dyeing, which uses sound waves to penetrate textile fibres, thus colouring the material. The brand says the process, which was created in 1941, is also safer for staff. “This is more energy-efficient and yields a product that is potent in colour, durable, and free of artificial binders or chem...

Further machine investment at Cifra in the new RDPJ 6/2 EL

Cesare Citterio, CEO of leading warp knit seamless specialist Cifra SpA, was in Japan last week to attend an Open Day at Nippon Mayer, the Japanese subsidiary of the Karl Mayer Group, to celebrate the German company’s 80th Anniversary. The company’s in-house show in Japan was the first event to kick off the year long global celebrations. With the investment in Nippon Mayer, Karl Mayer’s Japanese site in Fukui has become the Centre of Excellence for the development, construction and technical support of double-bar raschel machines, special machines and applications. Taking place from 1-3 March in Fukui, the event featured demonstrations of the company’s advanced machinery, including some newcomers, like the RSJ 4/2 EL raschel machine with double jacquard patterning. But there was another reason for Cesare Citterio’s trip to Japan. The dynamic Italian family run business is planning to invest in new Karl Mayer RDPJ 6/2 EL double needle bar jacquard machines in 24 gauge to meet increasing demand for its seamless products. “We are buying more machines to increase our capacity to meet increasing demand,” said Cesare Citterio. “We have big orders in our sportswear business and we are ...

Shame on me. I have been writing this home column now for 16-plus years. Every single

Shame on me. I have been writing this home column now for 16-plus years. Every single week. Over those years, I have written about some arguably minor topics. Take, for instance, the color white, how to choose a yard boulder and how to throw away a computer. Somehow, while dwelling on all sorts of fascinating minutiae, I have neglected to write about a common domestic workhorse, an item almost every home has, and has had since the dawn of humanity, an item most of us use every day. As we approach the season of gratefulness, I am giving long-overdue homage to the humble, honorable basket. An art form that started back when the Earth was cooling, or more accurately, pretty much as soon as people became people, according to experts in these sorts of things, baskets have transcended every age, culture and civilization. As long as grasses and reeds have grown alongside folks needing to gather stuff up, we’ve had baskets. Weavers have rustled up whatever was plentiful and free — cattails, wheat, prairie grass, palm branches, water hyacinth, seagrass, jicama root and plastic drinking straws — to fashion into everything from bassinets and bowls to blanket bins and birdcages. They’ve wov...

Early adopters of LED lighting will remember 50,000 hour or even 100,000 hour lifetime ratings printed on

Early adopters of LED lighting will remember 50,000 hour or even 100,000 hour lifetime ratings printed on the box. But during a recent trip to the hardware store the longest advertised lifetime I found was 25,000 hours. Others claimed only 7,500 or 15,000 hours. And yes, these are brand-name bulbs from Cree and GE. So, what happened to those 100,000 hour residential LED bulbs? Were the initial estimates just over-optimistic? Was it all marketing hype? Or, did we not know enough about LED aging to predict the true useful life of a bulb? I put these questions to the test. Join me after the break for some background on the light bulb cartel from the days of incandescent bulbs (not a joke, a cartel controlled the life of your bulbs), and for the destruction of some modern LED bulbs to see why the lifetimes are clocking in a lot lower than the original wave of LED replacements. Any discussion of light bulb lifetime would be incomplete without mention of the Phoebus cartel, an international organization formed in 1924 by the world’s leading light bulb manufacturers to manipulate the bulb market. As discussed by Markus Krajewski in “The Great Lightbulb Conspiracy”, the cartel assigned...
